Nub need help installing on Slackware 14.1 on Virt. BOX 4.3.2


Hi guys,

First time poster, and a total nub any help would be appreciated. I had combed through the web as well as this site to see if i could find the answer but came up with nothing. I am trying to install slackware 14.1 on virtualbox 4.3.2. Its giving me the kernel panic error - not sync.

I am using a windows 8, i5 64bit. I enable vt already in the bios and checked the PAE.

booted from a iso. file. using host file as other linux. Running 800mb worth of ram for the program.

Any help or information would be greatly appreciated!

update I started playing around with the settings and enabled EFI (special OSes only), I was able to get into the "Welcome to Grub" page and it allows me to select "Slackware 14.1 huge.s kernel" but then it would load back to the Kernel panic error again.

I will keep tinkering and keep you guys updated please let me know if you have any ideas.

From your screenshot, you are trying to boot Slackware 14.1 (that has 32-bit kernel) but you selected 'Other Linux (64-bit)'. Try selecting 'Other Linux (32-bit)' and then boot. See if this solves the problem.

Update

Sorry for the late reply guys, I was busy messing with it, and changing the settings for 32bit kernel didn't work. I believe allend might be right. I am going to find another version of Virtualbox to try to install. Will update you guys when it works.

I had similar error three months ago, I had to create an initrd after the installation.

see this http://slackbuilds.org/mirror/slackw.../README.initrd

http://www.slackware.com/releasenotes/14.1.php

From the release notes.

"One of the big changes in Slackware 14.1 is support for systems
running UEFI firmware (x86_64 Slackware edition only)"


Support for UEFI is only compatible with Slackware64 14.1 not Slackware 14.1
